I dont see a connection to the empty space, only a tiny photo in the lower corner.
05/01/2005 07:12:41 PM
This would be pleasing even if it the subject was larger.
I'd like a stack of note paper with this image...

Wow... that´s really a great pic. Definitely, it meets the challenge. Good use of the rule of thirds. Furthermore, the white background adds to your image a special thing. One of my favs of this challenge. 10. Added to my favourites. Keep the good work!

Great image. The man must feel so alone in the water be himself. Wonder if he got a good catch.

This is GREAT...10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2005 05:04:04 PM
Nice use of colors or lack of them. Nice proptions. I personally would have flipped it right to left because it seems alot of people put it on the right. But I still gave it a 7. Good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2005 04:57:37 PM
A good presentation and a lovely image which sets off the imagination to engage in its simple beauty. Bumping up.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2005 02:41:14 PM
I like the technique. reminiscent of the swan in light on white.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2005 02:10:34 PM
Can't imagine how you accomplished this superb image with basic editing! Upping my vote: 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2005 11:00:57 AM
Great photo. I'd like to know how you got the background so nicely washed out.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2005 07:47:58 AM
very nice. like the fact that you can see a bit of water. well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2005 06:43:18 AM
bumping up to 10, just fabulous how minimal can be beautiful. also add it to my list of favorites.Best luck.i
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2005 05:44:56 AM
I think the conversion of this image is excellent. But, I hate all the white. A little more detail in the background would have gotten you a 10. 9 from me on an excellent image. Good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2005 03:03:05 AM
Great image. I will trust that you didn't cheat! The best I have seen so far...

Nice one!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 05:52:02 PM
This is an awesome shot. The overexposure works great for this challenge, and definatly draws the eye to your subject. I like the use of black and whit, and the posture you've captured him in.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 04:20:05 PM
works well - i like it therefore i'll give it a good mark. It probably is minimalism in some sense
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 03:34:04 PM
crisp
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 01:25:53 PM
Awesome, pretty much a text book of minimalism as I understand it anway, gave it a 9 though since it´s still not a "wow" shot for me personally but good job, good luck in the challenge.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 02:39:04 AM
An interesting subject, and I like the way the water blends into nothingness. Unfortunately, I really can't stand pure bright backgrounds, since they're very hard on my eyes.
